HR Strategic Business Partnering Team Event

‘Strategically effective HRBPs can improve employee performance in their business units by 19% to 25%. Increases in profitability average 9%.’ Gartner 2023

This applies to HRBPs who operate ‘strategically’, and this is the core conundrum of business partnering. What does ‘strategic business partnering’ look like? And how can you achieve this kind of impact in your organisation?

The answer is a powerful mix of business acumen and relationship skills. Bring your HR team together (virtually or face-to-face) to share, debate and develop skills to:

  • Get the ‘business’ into business partnering
  • Build a strategy for raising the level at which you partner
  • Raise the impact of partnering conversation by conversation
  • This will appeal to HR leaders who want to challenge and inspire their team and unite them around the challenges and priorities that drive business success and value.
  • Participants will be SHRBPs, HRBPs and others who partner with client groups – everyone in HR needs to partner.
  • We have a version of this program that applies to business partnering in Finance, IT and other central functions.
  • We partner with HR leaders to lead their teams along a journey towards higher productivity and effectiveness.

Depending on your needs, topics can include:

  • The leader’s commitment to support and enable the team
  • Building a compelling vision and strategic narrative for their journey
  • The beliefs and mindsets that underpin making the shift to the next level
  • How to move up a level in partnering; identifying opportunities to take and new practices to use
  • The full potential of business partnering and what it can deliver for the HR team as well as for the stakeholder
  • HR Advocacy and Inquiry
  • 4 Modes of Business Partnering – moving towards more strategic conversations with senior stakeholders
  • Business acumen and how to use the language of the business rather than HR jargon
  • Your organisational goals and priorities, and how HR can respond more strategically to this – your ‘why’ for what strategic partnering can deliver
  • Latest thought leadership on strategic business partnering and how it creates value.

This workshop is facilitated by Deborah Wilkes, co-founder of Enable-HR International. Find out more about Deborah.
